    I’m so excited! It’s good to hear other people excited.

  • What a wonderful line from Clegg about the need to read “the small print” on his EU referendum leaflet!

  • Well, that was interesting. Of course, given my own opinions, it’s not surprising that I’d see Nick as having the better of Nigel on the facts, nor perhaps that I would think that Nick was a better debater; not quite so aggressive as Nigel at the beginning, but landing a lot of solid blows later on in the debate, and sticking to a few comprehensible and credible points.
    I admit I’m not immensely familiar with Nigel Farage’s screen presence, but I was a bit surprised at how nervous and jumpy he appeared, particularly toward the end. He came off as angry, of course, but I expect people (especially those who sympathise politically) can understand anger; but a long succession of nervous tics doesn’t come across quite so well.
    I was also surprised (not having familiarised myself with his position on the subject) to find that Farage was such an open apologist for Vladimir Putin and Viktor Yanukovych, going to far as to blame the European Union for the deaths of those shot by Yanukovych’s snipers. This is a curious niche view, and not one which I expect to be particularly digestible.
